Thanks for the excellent video. The unknown soldier ceremony was a great reminder of sacrifice we should always remember. Thank you for teaching your children about honor and thankfulness and American exceptionalism.

Thank You for all the time you put into this video for sharing our history and giving us an awesome virtual tour of Washington D.C.! The way you have integrated your experiences with your children while traveling, is very inspirational and of course very educational and motivating for them too – they are very lucky!

While the guys who said they weren't going to ever buy a Tesla did have some validity to their concerns of parts availability to third parties – I think they were exaggerating the relevance or they just don't know how reliable Tesla's actually are. I think it was wise of you to integrate the kids into that conversation (which kept those guys more civil as I perceived it). It's an obvious expectation that parts will not be as widely available before economy of scale is established; and that's with any new car company no matter who they might be, whether Tesla, Rivian, Workhorse, or even with limited production models of some of the major auto manufacturers. So I think comparing their parts and supply chain prevalence right now, to those companies who've had almost a hundred years to develop theirs – is kind of valid – but barely, because the Tesla repair incident rate per unit or per 1000 units, is much less therefore mitigating much of that concern. People tend to forget that EVs have a lot less moving and mechanical parts to break down in the first place. I think it's wise of Tesla to keep their parts and service carefully controlled while they're in this early growth stage, because allowing widespread third party access would contaminate the quality and standards of customer experience – which Tesla has had to give careful attention to even in their own service centers because at the end of the day, people are only human.

In the conversation with these three guys I wonder if you mentioned your total charging cost to make this coast to coast trip so far, to discuss the savings and relate it to how much they might save on average over each year compared to what gas and oil changes cost. It might even be impressive if you had set one of your trip energy calculators (Trip B for example) to use for the whole coast-to-coast trip. If your Model 3 was nearby during such a conversation, you could then show them the total costs and efficiency. Anyway, you're doing so much already with making the videos and optimizing the kids' experiences, so again – Thanks for the video!

My Grandpa and Nana are buried at Arlington. I have a pass to go and drive to the back and visit the gravesite. Arlington is a surreal experience. Humbling to visit each time.
